Liverpool are returning home from Qatar with a trophy in tow.

The Reds needed extra time to topple Brazilian side Flamengo in Saturday's Club World Cup final, with a 99th-minute goal from Roberto Firmino holding up as the lone tally at the Khalifa International Stadium.

The 28-year-old was the hero for the second time this week, as his late strike was also the difference in the semifinal win over Monterrey.

Liverpool, beaten finalists in the 2005 Club World Cup, are now just the second Premier League side to capture the title after Manchester United accomplished the feat in 2008.

More to come.
